    Like the engineer who hasn't got a clue about motors

    Because the poor buggers haven't been exposed to 'real life' - they are generally ostracised at school by the students and frequently their parents are either 'intellectual' and or non-physical types, so they don't get much exposure there.

    I went to school with one fellow, he got the all-time record average mark at Uni in first year. Definitely a non-starter at any sports (I wasn't much better either) or other social activities. Last I heard of him he was an engineering boffin somewhere outside of Melbourne.

    It's simply education beyond intelligence, lads. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Yep some are real bright... we've had a top honcho metallurgist trying to get a sample of dross using a plastic scoop into a plastic bag... derrrrr the dross is 450° surely you could feel the heat coming off it from 20' away!
    Another one doing a process commission asked me why his air driven lead pump was going so slow... god knows how but he had got the fittings to connect it up to a gas line, lucky there was no ignition source!

    Actually common sense is anything but (or is that butt?). Its just having someone who agrees with you.
